reform. president obama's initiative to reduce violence in america has been severely weakened. harry reid has announced the most controversial and ambitious part of the president's proposal a ban on assault weapons will not make the final cut when he brings the bill up for debate. >> but, right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues i talked about and what i'm going to try to do. i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best but my best i guess was not good enough. you'd think congress would listen but they clearly listened to the national rifle association and they do. the ban would have outlawed it nearly 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to ten rounds. and in today's "daily news" a removal of the assau
be exactly the right decision to then send it back to harry reid and president obama and ask if harry reid and president obama are willing to try to shut the government down in order to insist that obama care be fully funded now, even though it could well push us into a recession. >> now, this is the keynote speaker. and still wanting to get rid of obama care. >> yeah, it would seem insane that ted cruz is fighting for the path. he is trying to bring back the mccarthy era in his general ramblings on capitol hill. that would seem crazy. if paul ryan, supposedly the most serious men in washington who all the belt take seriously, wasn't doing the same thing in his budget, trying to get rid of the affordable health care act, which is signed off on. they are stuck in the past, not able to accept the results of the last election. you know who would love it if they tried to shut the government down? democrats. they are digging this party's grave and i don't think they even know it. >> we'll have to leave it there. joy reid and dana milbank, thank you both for your time. >>> it's a historic day at
to "hardball." harry reid dealt a devastating blow to gun control supporters yesterday when he signaled his bill next month won't include senator dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban. handing a political victory in round one to the nra. according to reid it was a numbers game. >> right now her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i'm not going to try to put somebody on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> i saw that coming. feinstein who has championed the cause for decades of fighting assault weapons plans to keep fighting for her ban. >> very powerful. i've known that all my wife. it doesn't take a weapon away from anyone. i mean, my goodness, the nra says there are 2 million of these or 3 million of them, whatever it is, in the country already. how many assault weapons do you need in the united states of america? >> well, the new york covered that this morning. look at that, wow. the headline "shame on u.s., assault weapons bill is dead." that is tough. surrounded by the photos of the children there killed in
to organize 309 million of us into one efficient unit. >> i speak for many when i say thank god for harry reid stopped bush's plan to privatize social security. so you wanted to turn her grandmother's retirement to lehman brothers, bear stearns? int is the people who were charge. social security has been around for 75 years and has never missed a check. thank god for social security. as for "obamacare," call your mother, father, ask them if like being on medicare. they love it. yes. and yet medicare only has 5000 employees. private insurance has hundreds of thousands of employees. inernment, more efficient health insurance. more effective, lower overhead, better outcomes, lower prices. the only change i want to make is change the eligibility age to birth. let's all get on medicare, then we will have a real system. >> i will not answer that, but i would love to all on. have you been to the dmv lately? yes. house of service. >> when secretary of state hillary clinton appeared for the senate hearing on benghazi, here is what she said about the cause of the riot -- [video clip] >> what difference
reality, and pulling the assault weapons ban from gun control legislation. majority leader harry reid says there aren't enough votes to overcome gop opposition. he says separating the ban from measures increases the chances of passage. the assault weapons ban appeared to gain momentum after the massacre in newtown, connecticut, in november. >>> president obama heading to the mideast in israel. the first time he visited the jewish state as president. abc's tahman bradley looks at the issues. >> reporter: president obama embarked on a trip to the middle east with the goal of winning the hearts and minds of the israeli people, mr. obama's first visit to israel as president. he will make several symbolic stops including laying a wreath at the founder of modern zionism. the centerpiece of the visit is delivering a speech to an audience of mostly college students. >> the president will visit israel with a message about the enduring relationship between the united states and israel about the unshakeable commitment the united states has to israel's security. >> report
. yesterday, senator majority leader harry reid had a debate on the floor and it is limited on this c.r. if the full 06 hours are taken up we'll see a vote on thursday. senate democrats want to move to their budget. the first senate budget on the oor in four years offered by patti murray and that budget is open to unlimited amendments, basically. once they start on that there could be 100 or more amendments and now they are talking about weekend votes. ut harry reid has not left for easter or passover recess before completing that. basically, the 60 hows of post closure debate time could be mited if they can get an unanimous consent but the senator from kansas blocked it because he wants an amendment on the federal aviation administration budget to allow them to have more money to stop the furloughs of the air traffic controllers. this has hit his state really heard and they are not giving him that vote so far. it is a slippery slope idea. they give him his vote they would have a flood gate opened. at one point there is 90 amendments to the c.r. and they are trying to avoid the situat
. harry reid says he hopes they can be finished tomorrow. and now to live coverage of the u.s. senate here on c-span2. the presiding officer: the our father in heaven, thank you for this opportunity to commune with you. inspire our lawmakers to daily create time when they can meet with you. lord, keep them from becoming discouraged by the difficulty of achieving their goals, knowing that you monitor their efforts and will reward their faithfulness. help us all to pause and be grateful for all the blessings we receive from you each day. may we never take for granted the blessings of life, salvation, sunshine, flowers, and countless other gifts from you. alarm us with disappointment in our souls in what we plan is less than your best. and lord, we ask you to bless francis, the new pontiff of the roman catholic church. we pray in your merciful name. amen. the presiding officer: please join me in reciting the pledge of allegiance to our flag. i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with libert
in the senating didn't have the stones for it. harry reid is going to let the assaults weapon ban die because he doesn't want to lose his seat. it's really sad. what is the tipping point going to be? what is it going to take for people to wise up, and look at crime rates in other countries that have sensible gun control. and i had this talk with michael moore, and he wrote about an op-ed about it last week, that it would take releasing photos of the victims. because americans watch too much tv. we have a shock level of about five weeks and then we move on. >> stephanie: you know what the real evil is chris? >> facebook. >> stephanie: actually i think it's twitter. photo of man watching porn at work goes viral. within hours it had been retweeted over 2500 times. he has a big windows -- >> yeah and a big computer monitor too. >> stephanie: student who bad-mouth teacher on twitter found out that teachers use twitter too. i hate you mr. terrence you said the test was on tuesday not wednesday. the test was scheduled for tuesday. the kid didn't pay at attention. and another rea
agree with my colleague senator harry reid and qusseir to describe the state of our country and the state of our national defense and the challenges we face around the world right now. it's a very difficult time and a dangerous time around the world. thatf the first challenges we face and one of the greatest national security threats that march of irane toward obtaining a nuclear weapon. i find myself, in reviewing senator heard chuck hagel's record and what he said when he appeared before us in a very lengthy hearing before the committee, to be very much at odds with him on this issue and also on some of his prior positions at odds with members of both sides of the aisle. host: merideth shiner, what about her role in the nomination of chuck hagel? you see her out front on the issue and on what happens in benghazi, the attacks on the embassy? guest: this is something you saw -- i don't using as know what to college. they have been very vocal on the issue, whether it was benghazi or the nomination of chuck hagel, which eventually passed, but not without some consternation. it
by democrats, and harry reid is not going to move anything forward. but senator graham says what he'll do is hold up any nominations and wreak havoc. over on the house side, frank wolf, a republican congressman from the commonwealth of virginia, says he has 60 signatures on a document to install a select committee, which will be great because then the select committee would look into what happened. john bolton, who used to be our ambassador to the united nations, says something is not right here. listen. >> i think the entire way the administration has handled the benghazi affair has been abnormal and i think it's particularly strange that the people who were there when the attack took place were not made available to congress or others interested in finding out what actually happened that day. part of the administration's problem here is that many people think they engaged in a coverup, that they made up the story about the demonstration because they didn't want to reveal that terrorist groups were prevalent in and around benghazi. i think the way to get to the bottom of the issue one wa
. and the senate's also in at 2 p.m. eastern, majority leader harry reid hoping to complete work on that continuing resolution and then move on to the 2014 budge and get it approved by the end of the week before the easter recess. live coverage of the house, as usual, on c-span and the senate on c-span2. earlier today here in washington republican national committee chair reince priebus announced the findings of a new report aimed at overhauling the republican party after losing the 2012 presidential election. the report, titled "the growth and opportunity project," includes 219 recommendations such as holding its national convention earlier than august in 2016 and modernizing the party's digital infrastructure. here's some of what he had totil say. >> in 2008 and 2012, the debates multiplied and were out of the control of the rnc. the cycle, this cycle, excuse me, there were 20 total debates. the first eight months before the iowa caucuses.. the report contrasts this with 1980 where there were six debates and 1988, there were 1 seven. i agree with the co-chairs whenw they say debates are vital to
overwhelmingly with republican support and opposition on our it was suggested to harry reid that that might be one way to get off the lack of action on making sure america pays its bills. the only reason i interrupt the gentlelady, i think it's important to understand your cut, cap, and balance passed before that suggestion was made included sequester as the fall back if we didn't reach the numbers. i think if it's the president's -- it's the president's via cut, cap, an balance which your side of the aisle passed and sent to the senate as presumably good policy. i thank the gentlelady for yielding, she was kind to do that. mrs. miller: i thank the gentleman for pointing out the sequencing of the sequester, the president's sequester, and i still say with the president's sequester, what's going to happen with this vote is a vivid nonstration of who is actually committed to doing more with less. my colleague, the gentleman, the minority whip, had also given a sort of historical lesson of various things under, in his observation of the way things had gone earlier on and i would point something
seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work hard and make tough choices, our kids will inherit a stronger country. mr. speaker, the choice is clear. if hoosier families balanced their budgets, washington doesn't have an excuse. it's time the president and the senate offer real solutions for hardworking hoosier families. i commend chairman ryan and the house budget committee for their hard work and i urge my colleagues to support the resolution. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: thank you, mr. chairman. i n
